Ben Wilmot, a defender for STOKE, was carried off on a stretcher while receiving oxygen.

After colliding with a West Brom player while vying for a bouncing ball after 36 minutes, the 23-year-old was injured.

His worried Stoke teammates watched as the medical team treated him on the pitch for a while before putting him on a stretcher and covering his face with a breathing mask.

Phil Jagielka, an experienced centre back who is 40 years old, took Wilmot’s place.

It is believed that Wilmot was taken directly to an ambulance at the bet365 Stadium parking lot.

Wilmot departs the pitch on a stretcher, according to Stoke’s tweet: “After a protracted delay. Wilmo, get better soon He is replaced by Jagielka.

“Ben Wilmot can’t continue and is being carried off,” West Brom continued. All the best to you, Ben.”

Social media was used by Potters supporters to express their support.

Someone said, “Ben Wilmot my heart is broken 💔 all the best.”

Another person commented: “That was a massive miss by the referee there, and the Albion boy deserved at least a yellow. Ben Wilmot is having a lot of problems, but perhaps it’s just a concussion.

Not looking good for him, a third said.

And one more person added: “Get well soon, Ben!”

Despite attention from Arsenal, Liverpool, and Tottenham, Wilmot was selected by Watford in 2018 after progressing through the development ranks at his local club Stevenage.

Jagielka makes return to Sheffield United

He made two Premier League games before going on loan to Swansea and Udinese before coming back to Vicarage Road in 2020.

But after 33 Hornets games, he joined Stoke in 2021 and has remained a staple ever since, establishing himself as a crucial player and fan favourite.

The mid-table Championship game’s first half ended with 11 minutes of additional injury time.

West Brom striker Daryl Dike also sustained an injury during the first-half stoppage time.
